Sheaffer Prelude


Sheaffer Prelude

Color: Tortoise
Material: Lacquer over brass
Filler: Cartridge/Converter
Date c. 1996
Nib: Steel M
Working? Yes

The Prelude is a nice mid-range pen offered by Sheaffer at the end of other product lines (like the Targa). They’ve drastically reduced the available finishes, though some are still in production, and I suspect the older ones will quickly become prized. While it lacks the grace of the inlaid nibs, the finish is gorgeous, and it’s a reliable and well-performing writer, roughly on par with Waterman’s Phileas (of which I’m also quite fond!), but with a slightly more substantial feel to it.
